Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you
Do you have the model for your dryer
Ok give me a few minutes to pull up diagram of unit
Ok was that power test on the back of the dryer?
Correct terminal block on the back of dryer. Ok so you need to test the hi limit thermostat it is on the heater. I will send you a diagram of what you need to test
Yes its really small and round. make sure the dryer is unplugged then pull both wires off and then test for continuity. Do you have a volt meter with tone , if not then do ohms test and you should get 0 ohms
You never want to bypass it just for future. Yes that was the one i was speaking about it controls power to the dryer.
The fuse im talking about is number 5 on the diagram
Yes that was the one i was reffering to it cuts power to dryer when it blows
Ok have you checked the belt is it good or broken?
Ok then its the timer that is the only thing that can give power or cut it off. Give me a minute and i will send diagram
I dont have a good picture of timer but i have the part# ***** ordering
Ok its not blindly ordering i had you test everything that is fed from the timer and if you tested correctly you have shown all fuses and switches test good. Also if you order from repairclinic.com they have a 100% return policy even after installing part so theres no risk on your part. I do know what i am doing if you doubt my experience then i can let you do what you think is best
Yes there is but you can only verify power. Plus I just looked at all parts and this model has a control board. give me a few minutes and i will get a diagram to show you how to test timer
Part #3 is the hi limit no power only safety fuse you only test for continuity not voltage
Why is the door switch taped?
The red and black wire on the timer is the power in
Ok i wasnt aware you had everything apart. No you need to not feel that your testing is better than mine or things will stay confusing and no reason to continue
You just didnt understand what i was saying i said it was the timer according to what you had already did. If you were so set on not following the process then you should have not asked for help since your so well versed. You will need to speak to administrator because i didnt get paid for the time wasted with resistance
Say what you want your the genius and my many years of experience mean nothing especially trying to help people that feel they know more than the trained technician. i take your comments serious and i will take action accordingly. I also didnt bail on anything you just werent listening but to busy feeling you know more. I also never said we were done testing but you were in such a hurry. Good luck to you
